Metacognitive Study Strategies for College Students


Hello, my name is Nicole and I currently live and work in the Rochester, NY area. This is my first semester at UAlbany taking classes toward a degree in Curriculum Development & Instructional Technology.


Rochester Institute of Technology

  • Bachelor of Science, Professional & Technical Communication
  • Master of Science, Communication & Media Technology

Professional Experience

I have worked in Higher Education since I was an undergraduate at RIT, I have experience working with Disabilities Services, Admissions, and Student Affairs; an area where I have worked for the past 5 years.

I am currently also teaching Public Speaking & Rhetorical Persuasion at the same school where I am an advisor. This is also my first semester teaching a regular, three credit course although I have taught Freshman Experience since I began working in Student Affairs.

Personal Life

In my free time (of which there seems to be very little), I like to spend my time with my dog, Cammie and my MINI Cooper. I also enjoy movies, cooking, reading, music, and pretty much anything that is creative.
